Nashville Curves Week – Meet CaNesha

It’s Day 2 of Nashville Curves week and it’s time to meet Nashville’s newest blogger, CaNesha! I met CaNesha when she cornered me at a Blogger Exchange event. This vivacious vixen had MANY things to say about the characters in my book, Jack and Ahlia! From that point, we’ve become fast friends and solid supporters of our shared creative endeavors. As a fellow member of the #Young40’s club, CaNesha is dedicated to living her BEST life no matter what anyone has to say! I’m so excited to introduce CaNesha as the newest member of Nashville Curves, Class of 2018!

And, that always gets me to thinking about the importance or non-importance of niche blogging.

Hello June: The Art of Asking for Help

It’s June! My favorite month of the year! Why? It’s my birthday month! This month I’m exploring the art of asking for help. It’s truly an art to figure out the things you NEED then researching places/people to ask for help. You may get rejected, but at least you tried. This is not about begging, this is about strategic moves to improve your life outcomes. It’s scary, but worth it. Continue reading “Hello June: The Art of Asking for Help”
